court brief in this case arguing that the ban harms the state's universities. travelers who had been previously barred from entering the u.s. are now making it past customs at u.s. airports. since the ruling on friday from a federal judge in washington state halted the ban on immigrants from seven majority muslim countries. travelers, such as this man who lived in the u.s. but went home to attend her father's funeral in libya. she was initially prevented from returning home to the u.s. >> it was a tough experience. i'm proud that i am libyan, but i consider this home. since the rest of the family were there, i would do anything to be here gang. >> we are happy now, because my wife is in the united states now. >> reporter: other travelers are still in limbo, some even with valid visas as confusion remains overseas.
4:03 pm
the 9th crier kit court of appeals in san francisco is expected to clear up that confusion. panel of three judges. william canby junior, appointed by jimmy carter, judge richard cliff top, appoint by judge but and michelle friedland, appointed by barack obama. on sun date refused the white house's request to immediately restore the ban. the case before the 9th crier kit centers on a challenge to the trump administration from the states of washington and minnesota which argued the ban wons constitutional and would harm their economy. others have since joined in to challenge the ban filing friend of the court briefs including a group of law procedures almost 100 tech companies who argued would it damage their ability to innovate. the aclu and a group of former national security officials including madelyn albright and john kerry who said there was no national security purpose for such a ban. in the brief filed late this afternoon the justice department says, "the state
4:04 pm
asks the courts to take the extraordinary step of second- guessing a formal national security judgment made by the president himself. oral arguments have been set for tomorrow at 3:00 p.m. over the phone. each side will have 30 minutes to argue their case. no matter the outcome the case is expected to make its way to the u.s. supreme court which right now has just eight justices. in the case of a split decision, the lower court ruling would stand, which is one of the reasons this decision at the 9th crier kit is viewed as so important. >> certainly going to be closely watched. monty thank you so much. dozens of silicon valley tech companies are joining the fight against president trump's travel ban. almost 100 companies have filed a court brief against the policy at the 9th crier kit court of appeals -- circuit court of appeals. the company argued the ruling could hurt economic growth. the companies that joined that brief include apple, google, facebook, twitter, sales force,
4:05 pm
and microsoft. important to note here that amazon, hewlett-packard and oracle did not join the group. >> let's start with the timing here. the 9th circuit will have this. the judges will hear oral arguments tomorrow at 3:00. how soon after that due expect a decision. >> let's say by the end of the week. they obviously want to move quickly but they also are giving both parties as much time as can be done within the speed. they have asked for that additional briefing over the weekend. now they're asking for oral argument. that shows they're take it very seriously. >> they're deciding whether or not this temporary restraining order stands or is reversed. the overall travel ban constitutionality is another argument. >> right. that's the secondary part. the whole fight now is all about whether the executive order can be implemented while the courts decide on the
4:06 pm
constitutionality. >> take us through what will happen. let's say the court of appeals panel says yes, we're going uphold this restraining order. what happens next? >> well, if they do that, then the government has one of two choices. they could just say, okay, go back to the district court, and then there's a proceeding that the district court would go to which would be the question of a preliminary injunction. that would be a fuller hearing. we probably would have live witnesses. and the judge would have the opportunity to write a much longer opinion than he had first time around. that then would be appealed. we would be back to the 9th circuit. the other choice is they could go right to the supreme court and make an effort to get a stay of the judges' original stay, but that probably takes five votes at the scott, and that would really be extraordinary relief at this point. >> extraordinary in that the supreme court typically would not get into that relief with so little merit going in,
4:07 pm
right? >> well, with such little record. not so much merit, but rather the quality of the record. this is rare. if they do that it would be like bush versus gore where they intervene quickly because they thought things were so chaotic in florida. that would be the only reason they would intervene. the normal course would be to allow the trial judge to go to that next step, have a fuller hearing on the record, more consideration of the argument, a fuller opinion, and then let the appellate courts do their work. >> all eyes on the bay area and the 9th circuit. david levine, thank you. appreciate it. >> thanks ted. of course there has been a lot of concern and sharp criticism of the president's policies. just today alameda county and city leaders there are now taking steps to protect refugees. joining us now to talk more is the vice-mayor of al madeda. first of all, if kai get your reaction to what is happening there in san francisco at the
4:08 pm
9th circuit court of appeals. >> you know, i think that this is really fascinating right now seeing what our courts are doing and also reassuring the american public really that the judiciary is there and their role, and they're taking it seriously in interpreting the constitution. i think a lot of this will inform what will happen if anything comes down to challenge sanctuary cities. >> tell me what is being proposed in the city of al madeda. >> in the city of alameda we actually became a sanctuary city in january. we first did a first reading back on december 20th. actually that was my first council meeting. it was after my swearing in that we did the first reading. that was really in anticipation of all of the campaign promises made by our president. and so in the -- in january actually three days before the inauguration, we voted as a council and passed the sanctuary city ordinance. >> and why do that? >> we really wanted to reassure our constituents and the community in general to let them know that we are going to
4:09 pm
be as vigilant as possible, and that we take seriously the oath that we took when we took office, which is to uphold both the federal and state constitutions. and to that end we're not just going to be mindlessly asserting or enforcing anything that comes down. federal government is not infoulable, and they are also held to the constitutional standards. >> okay, so not only did you become a sanctuary city but you are also looking at doing more to help immigrants and refugees. tell me about that, and that is going to be up for consideration tomorrow night. >> correct. it is a referral that i have jointly put forward along with mayor spencer. we wanted to take this negative and turn it into a positive. to that end what we have seen really with the women's march, with folks coming out at sfo and at the civic center is an outpouring from the community of folks who want to do more and want to be allies and help people who are feeling disenfranchised and afraid. so we took what the seattle
4:10 pm
model, and we're trying to implement it where we would actually facilitate bringing in legal experts and other folks to help with community training, know your rights work shop, and also provide some pro bo no legal assistance. >> this would be at no cost to the city, is that right? >> it will be of little cost. there will be some staff resources. i was just this weekend at clinics going on all over, in san jose, the filipino bar association put one on that was quite successful. and i have all the confidence that we're able to do in that alameda and really provide a positive proactive approach. >> that's something that we will continue to follow tomorrow when it is up for consideration there at the alameda city council. vice mayor, thank you so much. >> thanks heather. democrats plan to spend the next 24 hours speak on the senate floor in hopes of blocking the confirmation of betsy devos, president trump's nomination for education secretary. the experts are predicting the vote will be very close.
4:11 pm
in fact, they believe it will end up in a tie. two republican senators say that they will vote against devos after receiving calls from their home districts. if that happens vice president mike pence will be called in to break that tie. devos did not gain a lot of support during earlier hearings. she seemed unfamiliar with the individuals with disabilities education act and said guns may have to be in place in schools to protect students from grizzly bears. the confirmation vote is scheduled for noon tomorrow. coming up, addressing rising tuition costs. officials make city college of san francisco free for city residents. we will look into this free tuition program coming up. after a soggy day, more rain and wind on the way as storm number two begins to move into the bay area. what you can expect with this next system. the advisories in place and what you can expect for the rest of the week coming up.

4:18 pm
$3,500 a year annual tuition bill is difficult on her family these days. >> my dad,'s paraplegic, so that has been kind of hard on my family. >> reporter: but today mayor ed lyanne announced that city college would be the first community college in the country to be tuition free for san francisco residents. >> we can say to california residents who are living in san francisco, your community college is now free and quality. yes. >> reporter: the free tuition is expected to take hold this fall and will affect about 30,000 students. low-income full-time students will also get a $500 grant towards books and expenses. low-income part-time students will get $200 grants. >> when we look at not just the people that are enrolled today, but the people that are enrolled tomorrow, this is probably one of the biggest factors that will determine not just the educational future of
4:19 pm
this city, but also the economic future of this city. >> reporter: the program will cost the city $5.4 million a year for the next two years. money from a recent voter approved property tax on multimillion-dollar properties. students say they couldn't be happier about the more than $3,000 a year savings. >> free tuition is just like -- it's really a blessing, like what our families, he is special mine, like times are hard right now. >> i think it's really going to help students a lot. it might even bring more students over here. >> reporter: city college's enrollment did drop off significantly while the school's accreditation is beg threatened. the hope is the plan will boost that population back up. ted and heather. >> we'll have to see what happens. >> great program. rob, thank you. still ahead, an nfl investigation underway after tom brady asks friends to keep an eye out for a piece of

4:23 pm
paying for sex by buying dinner for the 19-year-old jasmine abuslin, also known as celeste guap. he is also charged with supplying alcohol to someone underage. henry lee is here. first of all, the timeline what are you expecting in this trial in terms of when will it start? today i guess it was just motions. >> they had some motions trying to get some evidence out by the defense. the jury will be selected tomorrow, then we could have opening estimates as early as tomorrow afternoon. >> the state's star witness is someone who is the bay area is now familiar with, jasmine abuslin, the 19-year-old. this is the first of several expected trials. all eyes are going to be on this oakland courthouse because it is expected that she will have to take the stand for the state to make its case. >> her attorney told me she will take the stand. i think she had some immunity here so she can testify in this case freely against that former livermore officer, dan black.
4:24 pm
an alameda county d.a. says while he may not have paid her money for serks he paid her in the form of dinner and had sex with her in his rv. >> this is an interesting case. first of all you have a prostitution charge that this ex-cop is facing. never gave her money but supposedly bought her dinner, and the state will try to prove that that was implicit and indeed is prostitution. but you just alluded to the most interesting part of this case which some people might think is a stretch. they apparently had relations, if you will, in an rv, and the state is claiming that that's lewd and will you less conduct. the defense is saying this was an entirely enclosed rv. the winds and doors were locked. no one could possibly know what was going on. i will note in that contra costa the d.a.
4:25 pm
there declined to file charges against cops saying that, you know what, there had to be a member of the public who could have potentially seen this type of lewd conduct. that d.a. also said a cop gave jasmine some cheetos, but that does not constitute payment. it will be very interesting to see how the alameda county views it. >> a lot of people who are ensnared in this case are going to be watching to see how the black case goes, and we will see jasmine abuslin likely on the stand later this week. henry lee, thank you. >> you bet. still ahead, president donald trump still threatening possible action against the state of california as lawmakers are considering making it a sanctuary state. state senator scott wiener will join us to talk more about this issue. and the 49ers, they just made it official, folks, announcing that this man, kyle shanahan, the 49ers new head coach. coming up after the break, the
4:26 pm
challenges that shanahan will face and the look at some of the criticism he is receiving from yesterday's play calls. stay with us.
4:27 pm
it's okay to cry, right? no more! we don't want anymore! [crying] ahhhhhhhhhh! everyday price and no extra monthly fees, unlike cable. speeds up to 45 megs, for $30 a month.
4:28 pm
. breaking sports news to tell you about. the san francisco 49ers making it official just a few minutes ago tweeting this, kyle
4:29 pm
shanahan is the new head coach of the 49ers. >> joining us now to talk about the inherent challenges that mr. shanahan will face and a little criticism from last night's game, because you were watching it, and as soon as you see atlanta in field goal range you're thinking game over, then the sack. >> it was not the outcome that people anticipated, especially when you consider the fact that it was a 28-3 ball game at one point. it took the greatest comeback in super bowl history to keep kyle shanahan from coming to san francisco on a victory lap as opposed to coming with questions. the play came midway through the third quarter with the falcons leading 28-12. matt ryan is sacked by new england. a fumble, and the recovery. the patriots scored a touchdown, and the two-point conversion just like that. it's a one-possession game. the patriots tied it up, but then in the fourth quarter the falcons had a chance to put it
4:30 pm
away. julio jones made what would have been the catch of the game to the ball at the new england 27. a two-possession game. this catch would have gone down in super bowl lore, but two plays put the falcons out of field goal range. clay flowers sacks ryan for a loss of 12. then on 3rd and 23 from the 35, ryan will complete a short pass to muhammad seanu. the falcons called for holding. that takes the falcons out of field goal range and allowed the patriots to tie the game and send it into overtime. >> i don't second-guess our play calling or wanting to throw it. honestly, we've got terrific guys, and we know how to match up. we know how to get open. that part of our game is so intact so the connection between matt and the guys, no, i don't. >> people are angry with kyle
4:31 pm
shanahan. they're angry with the coaching staff. i think they feel like that the coaching staff let them down. >> nfl games always full of what ifs, and it's obviously going to be that much more mag any feud in the super bowl, but as you said coming in, no big mystery that kyle shanahan was officially named the head coach but the difference is going to be the new mood in the press conference when you are either coming in here saying, yes, i'm the offensive coordinator of the super bowl champs, as opposed to we're on the wrong end of the biggest come back in history. >> he's had great success in atlanta. the problem of course, he's not going to have those players in san francisco. but everybody thinks does he have that mind that can really make a difference. >> you hit it on the head there as well. we should say there is no official press conference date yet by the 49ers. they announced the hiring. but you make a good point. there are 16 unrestricted free agents on that roster.
4:32 pm
that is not a roster that is loaded with talented nfl players. but if you look at those 16 those are people that had significant playing time this year including the quarterback situation where kaepernick is iffy at best and the other two guys are both unrestricted free agents. so just that positional lone demonstrates how much work there is to be done for both the new general manager and the new head coach. >> it was fun watching the super bowl with some 49ers fans because they were totally rooting for the falcons because of that. this is going to be our new head coach so let's see them win. >> big picture, probably not that big a deal but the mood in the press conference, some questions will be asked that would knost been asked otherwise. san francisco based airbnb aired a super bowl ad that sent a powerful political message.
4:33 pm
the ad shows people of all ages, races, and religious background and includes the hashtag "we accept." the ad never mentions president trump or the executive order banning people from certain countries from entering the u.s. as a follow-up to the ad airbnb now says it will provide short-term housing for 100,000 people in need during the next five years. the san francisco-based company says it will start by helping refugees, disaster survivors and relief workers, but it wants to help many more types of displaced people over time but also says it will donate $4 million to the international rescue committee over the next four years. there was another super bowl ad that received so much attention in fact that actually crashed the company's website.
4:34 pm
this commercial from hardware chain lumber 84 featured a spanish speaking mother and daughter. the end of the ad was reportedly banned from airing on tv since mentioned president trump's promise to build a border wall to. see the entire ad you had to go to lumber 84's website. in an interview president trump said that he may take action against california because of lawmakers, the fact that lawmakers are considering legislation that would make california a sanctuary state. >> i don't want to defund the state or the city. i don't want to defund anybody. i want to give them the money they need to properly operate as a city or a state. if they are going to have sanctuary cities, we may have to do. that essential that would be a weapon. >> so joining me now to talk more about this is california state senator scott wiener. i was going to call you supervisor. i'm not used to your new role.
4:35 pm
>> once a sprrvetion always a supervisor. >> nice to sigh. how real is this, declaring california a sanctuary state? >> well, we had a bill that's moving through the state senate right now that will make clear that we in california are in sol dare tea with our i am grant communities and that local law enforcement in california is not an arm of federal immigration, and we want our immigrant neighbors to feel comfortable going to report crimes to the police and not fearing that they are going to be deported. so that bill is moving through the legislature right now. >> do you think it will ultimately pass? >> i'm optimistic that it will pass. there's a lot of support for protecting immigrant communities in california, and we know that we have our work cut out fours. >> what do you make, though, of what president trump said in his threat to take away some
4:36 pm
federal funding now from the entire state, not just sanctuary cities like san francisco? >> well, the president can say whatever he wants. it would be illegal and unconstitutional for him to try to effectively take over california and say that you have to do what we want or we're going to almost talk you out of the union and not give you any federal money, but the president seems to be bound and determined to provoke a constitutional crisis. he is trying to illegally block immigration. he's attacking the judiciary. he is in bed with vladimir putin, and now he's attacking california and saying he is going to illegally strip us of federal money for healthcare, for help for disabled people, and so forth. so the president should start governing and stop violating
4:37 pm
the constitution. >> but the president has argued, though, senator that the country needs to do more to try to crack down on people coming into the country illegally. do you think that more should be done to stop illegal immigration? >> you know, what i'm focused on is -- are the residents, the 11 million residents of our country, immigrants, who came here to make lives for themselves and to raise their families, and they're not criminals. and the whole notion perpetuated by the president that being an undocumented immigrant somehow makes you a criminal is false. we know that undocument immigrants have lower crime rates than the population at large. these are people who came here for opportunity. the same reason my grandparents and great grandparents came to the united states 100 years ago. so we need to stop attacking and demonizing immigrants. we need to support our
4:38 pm
immigrant communities. that's what we're doing here in california. >> senator, you have heard i'm sure that the opposition and the point of at the present time and his supporters that while we have federal immigration laws in place for a reason, and obviously we want to welcome people who do it legally but those who come to the country illegally, something should be done because it increases the cost on cities and states and that sort of thing. but this whole idea of him pulling federal funding from the state, you don't think that that will stop efforts to make california a sanctuary state? >> no. california, we're not going to back down to a bull lane. we're going to stand with our immigrant communities, and the president does not have the authority to strip us of money. it's really bluster on his part. but just to be clear in terms of what you just mentioned, president trump has been very clear that he thinks that undocumented immigrants are committing crimes, and president's a public safety issue when we know that they
4:39 pm
are less likely to commit crimes than the population at large. so's a stereotype. it's really slander this constant linking of immigrants with criminal activity. any human being is capable of com mating crime. beg an undocument immigrant does not make you in any sense more likely to commit a crime. these are people would came hear for opportunities. the federal government enforces federal law. we can't control would they're going to do. what we can control is how the government and california interacts with its common neighbors. we need to run our own state, and that means including all of our communities. >> all right, state senator scott wiener, always appreciate the time. thanks again. congratulations on the senate victory. >> thank you very much. i appreciate it. all right, still ahead from potholes to landslides to rainy
4:40 pm
winter has caused a lot of problems on bay area roads. coming up after the break we will have a closer look at the issue that has even led to life threatening closures. rain and wind on its way to the bay area. i will have a look at what we can expect with this next system and the advisories in place coming up.

in marin county a two and a
4:43 pm
half mile stretch of highway 101 is still shut down because of a landslide. >> but luckily, as ken wayne reports, there may be a late at the end of the tunnel for people who live in the community of the beach. >> reporter: anyone who lives with an ocean view is blessed with stunning scenery and the risk of forced isolation. >> we are living on the edge but we all knew that when we moved out there. but, you know, we didn't want to be on this much of an edge. >> reporter: the 350 residents who live here on this beach in marin county aren't completely trapped, but they're definitely a bit more cut off. their primary access is highway 1. but this is what the road looks like now, part of it torn away after a landslide from last month's storms. >> we're all used to. that we knew that when we moved in. >> reporter: chris is the assistant fire chief for the department here. he says the closure of highway 1 is not only inconvenient, it
4:44 pm
also reduces emergency response time. his firefighters and a paramedics are the first responders for muir woods. >> it's about 65, 70% of our responses is to muir woods. >> reporter: frustrated muir beach residents launched a letter writing campaign after caltrans said it could be months before the problem could be fixed. now it says the $5 million project should be finished by april 1st. so we know that. and that's why we're going as fast as we can to make sure the repairs are completed. >> reporter: from mendocino county to big corks sections of highway 1 seem to always suffer closures from stormy weather. some closures last a few hours, others for months. caltrans says it's in a constant battle with mother nature to keep the highway open. >> highway 1 is a coastal highway. it's very, very vital.
4:45 pm
and that's one of the challenges we face. it's a very necessary and vital road, but it also is very subject to storm damage. >> reporter: ken wayne, ktvu fox 2 news. outside our doors it is a soggy one, and the next system pulling in going to bring more rain, going to bring the wind as well. we have advisories that will move into place a little later tonight. there's a look across the east bay where we are again just with a lot of overcast sky. we had the radar going all day long. even below the radar drizzle falling in most spots. just a very moist air in place. an inch and a half reported by ben lohman. a half inch in pleasanton, .3 over livermore. most of our urban areas pick up anywhere from a quarter to a
4:46 pm
half inch. our hills picked up quite a bit in the last 24 hours. as we go forward we again are looking at rain increasing. this is a three-hour time- lapse. you can see over the last hour or sought has really become widespread. so a light rain falling over the entire bay area just in time for the evening drive. if we put the radar in motion you can see all of us pretty much getting wet. heavier rain over the peninsula and over the hills and areas near los altos. even if we're not seeing it on radar chances are we've got drizzle out there. here's a look at futurecast. here we are into the evening hours. this is when the heaviest rain is expected to arrive. this is when the wind is also expected to arrive. i will show you the advisory in a moment. but take a look at the morning drive. it's really expected to be coming down. we are look at popping on the roadways, the risk of a little bit of flooding out there. so again you are going to want to take it easy tomorrow morning. here we are into tuesday
4:47 pm
